Alice Russell with Guest: Niña Mendoza – Vancouver Int’l Jazz Festival

Alice Russell has gained a reputation as one of the hottest singers in the U.K., recording with the likes of Massive Attack, the Roots, Quantic Soul Orchestra, Mr. Scruff, Roy Ayers, and De La Soul. Blessed with a soulful and powerful voice that draws here-and-there comparisons to Minnie Ripperton, Chaka Khan, and Aretha Franklin, her sound is rootsy yet thoroughly modern. Pot of Gold (Six Degrees), her fourth CD, had Exclaim magazine boasting that “of the current crop of revivalist soul starlets, Alice Russell is the most sonically ferocious, her voice melding both an awe-inspiring storm and its preceding calm… [Hers is] a well-honed blend of dynamic soul and polished funk with ample gospel inflections thrown in.”
Sassy, self-assured, and thoroughly captivating—that’s Alice Russell!
